This DIY necklace hanger combines the elements of functional decor and nature. A simple branch that you can find outside provides texture and organic style on your wall while serving as a jewelry hanger. It is as brilliant as it is beautiful!

This DIY jewelry hanger is so sweet and a such a beautiful way to display your necklaces and bracelets. It is the perfect project for so many reasons:

First, it incorporates my favorite minimal and practical approach to decorating. I love creating a calm environment by using decor that is also functional: baskets for end tables, apothecary jars for small items, decorative baskets and bins for storage, and furniture that meets our needs.

Next, it brings an element of the outdoors to the indoors. Natural objects invite a calm atmosphere into a space. Additionally, their quirky and often non-linear shape add another visual layer to the straight lines of rooms and furniture.

Finally, it is really easy to make. You can complete this DIY jewelry hanger in just a few minutes and for less than $5. And it is very customizable to be any size you need and to match your room’s metal finishes.

Every woman needs a jewelry hanger to keep necklaces and bracelets from getting kinked and tangled. It’s also nice to be able to see and access all of your necklaces.

What You Need

  • Picture Hanging Wire – Copper blends really well with natural wood, but silver and gold wire will also work.
  • Tree Branch or Driftwood – Find one that has a shape you like in your yard or on a walk.
  • Wire Cutters – To cut the wire to size.
  • Small Nail or Tack – To hang.
  • Hammer – To hang.

How to Make Jewelry Hanger

  1. Clean your branch or driftwood with a cloth or gentle brush.
  2. Gently straighten your wire as you unwrap it from the spool.
  3. Secure the wire to one end of your branch by wrapping it around completely at least 3 times.
  4. Create a triangle the length you want it to hang. Secure at the other end of the branch by wrapping it around the branch again. Cut excess wire with wire cutters.
  5. Hold the jewelry hanger on your wall to find the height where you want your necklace hanger. Mark where the triangle tip is and then put a tack or nail in the wall.
  6. Hang your lovely creation and then hang your clasped necklaces and bracelets.

  • For a Coastal look, use driftwood hung with wire or rope.
  • Paint the branch a color of your choice.
  • Spray a light coat of glitter on the branch for a little sparkle.
  • Screw small cup hooks to the bottom of the branch or put small nails in the top of the branch to hang necklaces that don’t have clasps.
